In 1995 our mission and company name was changed to Aristo-Cast. The new mission was to be an innovator and leading producer of more complex castings, with uncommon alloy solutions to produce better castings from lightweight materials. The subsequent growth of the company required a move from our 8,000 sq. ft. leased facility in Romeo, Michigan, to our current 23,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility in Almont, Michigan, which was designed as an Investment Casting foundry from inception.
Little did we know at the time that we had chosen a name that was very fitting to our new mission, as in the Greek vocabulary, “Aristo” means “best.”
In 2003 we opened our Advanced Technology Center, a 12,000 sq. ft. tool making facility which also grew to house the latest additive manufacturing equipment, wax printers, our magnesium and aluminum casting operation, and a tool shop with 5 axis machining capabilities.
From those humble beginnings we have become a recognized leader and innovator in the investment casting industry and are proud to be known for our willingness to tackle the tough casting projects that other foundries decline to quote. Our many awards serve as a testament to our mission. We are sincerely honored to be given these awards which are more than prizes, as they were bestowed upon us by our industry’s peers.
While the entire casting industry is excited about new methods of making parts, few understand that investment casting is one of the very earliest methods of additive manufacturing – with its history going back 6,000 years. One thing is for sure, Aristo-Cast only uses high quality alloys and technologies because using the best materials to reduce your casting costs while increasing quality – never goes out of style.
